Diving in Mauritius Island
„Almost as nice as the Maldives“, that’s the general opinion among divers. Understandable, it is in fact great to dive in waters warmer than 30° C, choosing among a huge variety of diving-sites and having the great opportunity to meet here and there a hungry shark.
Courses are offered all around the island in one of the numerous diving-centers (most of them inside the hotels, but accessible to non-residents as well). Depending on the diving-center, courses in PADI, CMAS or NAUI are offered.
Here a small selection of some of the nicest diving-sites:
- the wrecks of the,Silver Star’,Stella Maru’ and ,Hassan Mia’ in the north
- cave-diving at, Gunners Quoin
- shark-diving in the, Shark Pit’
- coral-diving at, Gorgoni’
